I’m trying to feel your pain, but look at that disgusting building. Look at the design. Look at the materials. Look at the “common area”. What type of person do you think that type of building attracts as a potential owner/tenant? Unfortunately for you and your family, your inability to discern the type of neighbor you would one day have when you signed that mortgage/lease makes your appeal for understanding and sympathy somewhat emabarrassing. You bought into the disaster of modern Hoboken that you — wittingly or not — created. You brought your piss-hole of a backyard onto yourself. What type of person do you think would actually inhabit a swill bucket like that? You deserve every bit of vomit that stuck to your shoes. Maybe you can take now a moment to meditate on the worthy factory or warehouse or tenement that once proudly stood where your precious little 2BR, 1B, with granite counters and subzero ‘fridge now stands monument — Ozymandias-like — to the amoral suburban Jersey scum from which you rise.

I live in the building from those pictures and there were a ton of people out in that courtyard… the complaining should be made to management not the city council. I will say this though… the courtyard was cleaned up pretty well on Sunday. Also, you had to know what you were getting into when you first moved in… if not, then definitely by year 2.

. I encourage you to post links to your aftermath photos so photo links can be collected and presented to City Council to put an end to this madness. We’ve lived here for 7 years in the same building and it is worse ever year.[/quote]

I would hardly call that destruction. Pigs yes. Instead of going after the city council. Why dont you make it so that who ever uses your outdoor space needs to get approval from the condo board. They are responsible to clean up anbd if they dont they get a fine from the building.

maybe there was enforcement on washington street, but garden and park, between 10th and 4th – was nuts. i saw one cop car come by in 4 hours and they just told people to beat it – no tickets. giant parties spilling off the stoops into the sidewalks and streets. i saw tons of people with actual beer bottles – not even cups. walking around with a drink in your hand west of wash street was the norm. now personally i don’t give a shit – but if people are talking about tickets and enforcement i would be very surprised if that included too much stuff off the main drag.

also – what is the deal with gate parties? i thought last year a lot of people got busted for “public drinking” in front of their houses but inside their gates? saw a bunch of parties with pong tables right out on the front yard – any of those get busted?

only one day – and for the most part the town is back to normal within 24 hours.

Billy Bergin was quoted today as saying he’d like to cancel this spectacle. Finally, someone who gets it.
